I went with some friends for dinner here. It is one of their favourite places. Good atmosphere although it can ben a bit noisy when crowded.

Recommended by my hotel, I had dinner while on a business trip. The food was very good and the service attentive. Definitely a cut above the average chain casual dining spot. Busy and appropriately noisy, with great attentive service.

This was my first time eating here and I was not disappointed. The service was quick and pleasant. The menu has a wide selection for lunch and dinner. There is patio seating that is pet friendly.

This is our favorite restaurant in town. The service and the food are consistently good. The menu offers a vast variety of fun things to try. My husband prefers his hamburger cooked a certain way. The chefs at Lazy Dog always get it right. Not so at most other places. The ambiance is comfortable with a very nice patio.

You could take the name off the menu and it could be any chain restaurant in America. Yawn. Service was okay to indifferent. Decor meh. If I had to eat there, that would be okay, but choose to? Nope.

If you want a standard type meal, this is the place for you. Nothing special, but its a good place for a lunch with friends or your work mates. Good atmosphere, but can get a little noisy.

Good place to meet friends and family for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Friendly atmosphere, good food with some surprises on the menu. Would recommend to anyone, young or old. Can get very crowded on weekends.

Much improved over a rocky start. Decent casual food and a great spot before or after movie next door. Apple cobbler is extraordinarily good.
